“Between 1995 and 2008, the complainant was targeted by the defendant because he was a close friend and trusted confidant of Princess Diana, and subsequently because of his role in the public sphere following his departure from the Royal Household. During Diana's lifetime, the defendant's activities caused his relationship with her to deteriorate as she mistakenly thought that her highly personal information was being leaked to the press.”Francis Leonard, the former butler's lawyer, told the High Court.
